The 2020/21 Premier League season is finally over and not only did Harry Kane clinch the Golden Boot, but he was also the division’s top playmaker.

The Tottenham striker emerged as one of the top flight’s chief playmakers earlier this season with his almost telepathic link-up with Son Heung-min, and he maintained that creative streak right up until the final kick of the campaign, outgunning the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Bruno Fernandes.

Those three were also in mix, but who else put themselves in the frame for most assists until Kane scooped the Premier League Playmaker Award for 2020/21, and who was each club’s top ‘creator’?
